maybe they tell them so much that they do not know any other way to act. and like someone else said they just tell them to act like they are someone.

I'd venture to say you know what the truth is...the heart is seldom wrong...if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck...chances are it's a duck...go with your instincts. And remember....more then not, there is a grain of truth in every lie/story told.

My father is good at telling lies. Even swearing on his kids life that it is the truth. "Of course it is not". We ask why he tells lies and goes along with his girlfriend that does also. He just looks at us. Sometimes it is best to stay away from those that can hurt through their tongue.

Men dont know just how bad a lie can hurt some one i proved the lie to be the truth an he still says he didnt lie i swear i dunno what to do i have put up with this so long i dunno what to do with my self i went out an bought a 42.00 drug test to prove that i knew he was high an when he took the test it came back positive i took my last 42.00 to purchase the test an i could have taken it back before it was used but he insisted he was not on anything then he took the test an failed an still acts like i am stupit.

I knew you knew what the truth was...why are you beating yourself up over this....he's obviously the one that f'd up...let him own it....NOT you...it wasn't the "lie" that ruined your marriage...it was that fact that he's "using" that ruined it....which was HIM...NOT you...

People who lie about almost every thing don't care who they hurt. When they are caught. "It's not what it looks like" don't be stupid are you crazy you need help. She gets in my face yelling trying to intimidate me making you feel two inches tall then stops talking and treating me like it's me not her that has the problem. It goes on and on and will never stop

To continue! I think liers believe every word they say if not why are thay so good at it or is our self-esteem that low we let so-called loved ones treat us that way. Does it come from our upbringing being put down when we know were right.( in my case anyway.) In my case i should opend my eyes from the start, looking back now how did i miss it.

Found out that it was ALL LIES after it ruined my marriage and my feelings for him. But people said words can't hurt you but hell yeah they can. I rather be beat than go thru that pain afain.
